I think this is the first time we have turned our fans off since arriving in Darwin forever ago. Still shouldn’t complain, it’s a lovely touch of mild weather compared to what our southern counterparts are experiencing. Our son said it was quite mild in Canberra yesterday … they could wipe the frost off the windscreen rather than have to chip it off with a credit card !
Please note we have a couple of calendar changes due to the unavailability of Hidden Valley for our duathlon Race 2.
We have basically just swapped the next two events ie we will have the triathlon at Lake Alexander on the 17 June and Race 2 of the Duathlon Series at Hidden Valley on 8 July. Race directors have swapped but rostered volunteers for other positions remain the same.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but with the V8s at Hidden Valley that weekend we couldn’t “ do the du” on the 17 June.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE A TRIATHLETE WHEN …
… you talk about hammering and bricks but you aren’t referring to DIY.
… all of your "normal" friends call you "#*@ing crazy"
… your family, friends & workmates have given up asking "what are you up to this weekend?" knowing that the reply will be identical to the past 40, i.e. "training". The only variation is "racing".
